There’ll probably never be another Judge Dredd movie

He may be the law, but Judge Dredd has been overruled at the box office. Dredd didn't even meet the studio's lowball estimates of $9 million to $10 million in its first weekend in the United States, pulling in an estimated $6.3 million instead. And it hasn't even done well enough in the U.K. and other European countries to compensate.

This is too bad, both because Dredd was a nifty film and because this is the sort of mid-budget action movie that ought to be a slam dunk — Dredd didn't need to make hundreds of millions at the box office to break even, it just needed a decent number of die-hard action movie fans. But this is more ammunition for people who claim that mid-budget movies are dead, further bifurcating the market into low-budget indies and massive blockbusters. (Luckily, another mid-budget action film, End of Watch, had a much better weekend.)

Oh well. Can't say they didn't try.

I did. It was surprisingly good.
